this sunday (23.11.11)
The genus Buchnera has got shifted into family Orobanchaceae
Buchnera hispida ... http://www.theplantlist.org/tpl/record/kew-2685035
atleast in Maharshtra all Orobancaceae members are parasite and without stem and leaves and roots...
I don't think there is need to contest when ... has provided the link as proof. Here are more proofs:

This small herb with beautiful pink-purple flowers was photographed in September 2011 from near Chakrata (Uttarakhand). I think this is a species of Buchnera. Hope to find the proper identification.
I think Buchnera hispida
Buchnera hispida From me too.
A hemiparasitic root parasite plant species earlier from Family Scrophulariaceae now included in Orobanchaceae.
Yes ... I located mine also, Buchnera hispida identified from Flora Simlensis. I find this Flora very handy for most Himalayan plants.
I had earlier uploaded a similar plant from Morni Hills, identity could not be concluded up to species level, I will again resurface the mail or re-upload the same for identification. That was a Buchnera species.
Hai this was my post earlier and identified as Buchnera hispida by ... and ...


Buchnera hispida
Herbs c 30 cm high, erect, hispid. Leaves 2.5-4.5 x 0.2-1.5 cm; lower crowded, obovate or oblong; upper ones narrower, linear lanceolate. Inflorescence of terminal spike like racemes. Flowers blue or bluish purple. Capsule oblong, shorter than calyx. Seeds reticulate.

Formerly in Scrophulariaceae, this is now placed in Orobanchaceae..
please validate if this is Buchnera hispida Buch.-Ham. ex D. Don.
Was shot from Bairat Khai-Chakrata Road..
I think Yes. It seems to have a widespread distribution esp. grasslands of different parts of India.

Small herb.
Bot. name: Buchnera hispida.
Location: Dodhani Village, Panvel.

Scrophulariaceae Fortnight: Buchnera from Gori Valley- NS 13 : Attachments (5). 3 posts by 2 authors.
These pics were recorded from Gori valley area.. wanted to know if these are same Buchnera hispida as posted earlier from Chakrata... the differences I could make out are 
1. size and number of flowers, here they are smaller and crowded towards the apex, 
2. shape of petals- here they are nearly elliptic, in the previous post slightly emarginate, 
3. each petals here has a darker streak here 
4. the plant here is comparatively less hairy..
Still my search leads me to Buchnera hispida only.. your opinion please.. FoC records B. cruciata (Syn. B. densiflora) from N India.. 
link to old post from Chakrata for comparison:
